Overcomes voltage drop caused by long cable runs.
The REDARC BCDC1220-IGN is a multi-stage DC to DC dual battery charger which features technology capable of fully charging a lead acid auxiliary battery. It’s designed for vehicles fitted with an ECU-controlled variable voltage alternator. The battery charger is designed to work with an operating range of 9-32V and gives the option for charging from either 12V or 24V vehicle systems.
Low voltage setting
The BCDC1220-IGN has a lower voltage setting and will continue to operate with a low input voltage from the alternator. Should the voltage get too low, the unit acts as a dual battery isolator and protects the start battery.
Built tough for all conditions
It’s compact in size and fully sealed to eliminate the risk of damage from dust, water, and vibration. It can handle the toughest trails and roughest terrains and can operate under extreme heat (up to 176°F). Plus, fan cooling makes for a quiet operation. The DC-DC battery charger, charges AGM, gel, calcium content, VRLA, and standard lead acid batteries. The BCDC range charges your auxiliary battery banks to 100% state of charge while on the move and on to your next great adventure.*
*large capacity battery banks may require a few cycles to fully charge.

There are some Lithium battery manufacturers that are not suitable to be used with the REDARC charger, however there is not a listing available. For reference, Expion360 LiFePO4 batteries are used within the REDARC fleet, but if you are interested in other brands then it is recommended you consult with the tech support of that battery manufacturer to confirm the compatibility with a REDARC charger.
